My daughter and I had a lot of fun. The confirmation of the pick-up took place after a few minutes via WhatsApp. The pickup was on time and the guide friendly and multilingual. The bus was older, but the access road to the mountains was being upgraded and there weren't too many curves. It had rained the day before, so we drove the buggy through a lot of puddles. The operation with automatic was very easy. Then we went 14km through the canyon in a rubber dinghy. The view was picturesque and especially at the front you got really wet. Luckily we had rented wetsuits. It is best to bring your own bathing shoes. But you can also borrow them. In between there was a break with the possibility of crossing the river by cable car for 8 euros. The final lunch was delicious (grilled chicken, noodles, rice, salad). You can buy a video of the rafting. Great nature and adventure - highly recommended!

Súper buen recorrido, el guía dio buena información. Para hacer este tour toma en cuenta llevar bloqueador solar y agua para hidratarte. Las vistas son hermosas, muy cómodo el autobús. La comida incluida es muy pobre y el restaurante no se veía muy limpio. Por lo demás es una buena experiencia. ( si puedes llevar tus snacks estría genial )

Great experience doing white water rafting with Apo and Bilal. they were very friendly and made the experience very enjoyable. the raft was in excellent condition and the scenery was great.

An early start but well worth it. Guide was friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about all locations we visited. Included lunch which was basic but was all that was required!

Everything went great. From pickup to return. The food was very good and the whole tour was a lot of fun. Our guide was also very nice
